Drago is on bonsai for only one year. It is amazing what a good eye he has developed for potential in raw material. With the help of Matija he has already a very promising collection of raw material.
Many who see these reports from Slovenia and Croatia will wonder about the amazing number of very recently collected trees and wonder whether they have any bonsai there too. Sure they have, but they have learned that these are just toys which were good enough for a start. These guys are serious. For great bonsai one needs great material. And they certainly got it. If they could get this together within only a few months I want to see what they have in ten years. It is good to have such students!
